It is a window casting light onto a shared stairwell in Sherlock House, which houses Ms Eagle’s constituency office along with no less than five other businesses, as the image above shows.
Members of the public have investigated this matter and turned up far more information than the press, whose reports seem to have had an ulterior motive behind them. Look at this YouTube clip, for example:
Ms Eagle’s office appears to be on the ground floor – with a Labour Party sticker in the window – so it seems unlikely that anybody wishing to target it would have failed to find it.
In all fairness, it seems the break was either a random act of vandalism or a failed burglary attempt.
But Ms Eagle was determined to blame it on so-called ‘Corbynistas’.
Many people – not all of them supporters of Mr Corbyn – are very angry about this bare-faced attempt to hoodwink us.
This is one of many lies that have been spread about Mr Corbyn and his supporters by Labour MPs who are trying to remove him from the Labour leadership, after all.
And the British public don’t like liars.
We’ve all been had.
Yet again, the mainstream media juggernaut has lunged into overdrive and without stopping to check its facts and its sources has taken on trust what Angela Eagle, a hard-bitten Westminster MP of 24 years’ standing and her advisors have been telling them. They could have applied the brakes and made some very basic, very obvious checks – checks which I’ve carried out for myself this evening.
Angela Eagle’s office windows were not targeted. They were left untouched. But it appears that somebody connected to Ms Eagle or possibly Ms Eagle herself, when briefing the press pack, has allowed their dishonesty or their desire to misrepresent what happened to get the better of them.
